Opening Ceremony

Does anyone have any ideas if they would want to delay their opening ceremony until after the dedication of the Makkah Royal Clock Tower Hotel?

What is the appropriate etiquette? Would they want to be first, or would be that considered disrespectful not to wait for Makkah?

I assume Makkah will be open for the haj.

How is one thing related to the other? Should we postpone opening buildings with spires, lifts and windows as well, as it might be disrespectful? This will not open before AAB, I assure you, but not out of respect, just because this tower is GODDAMN SLOW.

That comment is a little too much. These clock towers are some of the most significant buildings in Islamic culture in recent memory.

We don't even know if there will be a clock.

The same developer completed the structure of a 23 storey tower elsewhere in town, since 2008, and is left like that since then.

London Crown Hotel Apartments. It's on the 'Dubai metro area' section.

Am I right in my idea that the materials used are really cheap here? Like a palace from far away but just an ordinary cheap appartment building from the inside?

The same company who did the Interiors of the Address Hotel Downtown Dubai and the Atlantis The Palm's Interiors is doing the Interior of this tower. I would assume that it is therefore not cheap....

As if a fitting company decides how the inside will look like. It's the developer along with the architects who decides how the interior will look like, the fitting out company just materialises their plans, indifferent how the plans actually are.

It's an interior design company not a fit-out company like DEPA and the likes. I do agree that the client can have an influence on the final product though.

No not really, actually not even close to being true.

99.99 percent of all interior fits in Dubai residential buildings are cheap, and ugly even though the developers sales pitches were five star quality. Government housing, or welfare buildings actually have better interiors in the west.

. most of you don't know anything about skyscrapers, except that Dubai builds them better than your cities, so you end up hating anything Dubai. i have noticed this over and over again. it need not matter how awesome and tall the tower is. it gets bashed to **** around ssc. to bad. i like this tower and if built in any other city, so would most of you. that's a fact.
